Running a Simulation
To run a simulation you first must provide parameter values for the model by specifying the duration time of the simulation and the specific model settings for the solver, simulation engine, and 3-D visualization area. The settings for all model types are accessed either under the Settings tab or in the Model Settings palette under the Project Tab and are organized into to the following sections:
Note: Multibody and 3-D Visualization Settings appear only for multibody models.
For more information about the different stages of the simulation process, see Chapter 4: Simulating and Visualizing a Model in the MapleSim User's Guide. For more information about DAE solvers and error tolerance, see dsolve/numeric in the Maple help system.
Note: A model must contain at least one probe with a set quantity, otherwise the simulation will fail.
To run a simulation
In the navigation toolbar, click Main to browse to the top level of the model.
Under the Settings tab, located at the right of the Model Workspace, specify the simulation values for your specific model in the following sections:
Note: If you want to cancel a simulation before it is complete, click Stop (
) in the Main Toolbar.
